    @Sparkyflyer, So well put. But I wouldn’t waste my time reprimanding Judy the Nag as it will fall upon deaf ears just as it does with Nigel, aka VK. Seems they both are too perfect for words.

    …not necessarily, alexpo1. Not necessarily.

    Oh dear, Sparky, your post is accurate and I do apologize to you all. There is no reason for me to share my thoughts in a negative way. The only excuse I can offer is that I worked very hard for equality in the business world and certain things push my buttons these days. It seems to me that today’s women are throwing it all away with cleavage, bad grammar and 5″ heels. I believe that businesswomen are sliding back down to the secretarial level, but I can just keep these feelings to myself.

    From the aircraft markings that could be seen on Sky News, it appears that our young Royals used an Austrian private jet charter to transport them on the latest leg of their tour to the Solomon Islands.

    Why on earth UKPlc can not benefit more, by using G- registered aircraft for our royals. This on the day when it was announced that 6 fighter jets were destroyed (replacement costs, £millions) during the failed attempt to catch William’s brother, who is on active duty!

    Maybe its time this lot got proper jobs.

    The private jet has been used for the whole trip (not just the last leg).

    Hence the need for a designated royal jet or at least a UK registered renta-jet!

    I read once that Princess Margaret always used to book Y class on BA and wait to be automatically upgraded. Can you imagine HRH being rejected by the Lounge police for not having the right ticket?

    I can.

    Alex, sadly I can’t, BA and others would upgrade and make exceptions. That is what is so wrong with the current set up.
    As for a private jet, no no no, it would just be wrong, so wrong when so much else is required.

    Seeing the latest pictures, and Judy, she certainly did not become duchess thanks to her cleavage, they are obviously very much in love, so perhaps the SQ suites double bed proved irresistible đŸ˜‰

    It would have been nice if they had used RAAF aircraft rather than just a private OZ registered jet !!

    That really would have upset the Skippy Republicans !

    Even better .could have got a local newspaper/magazine
    to sponser them in return for some pictures.

    Irrepsective of your thoughts on the Royal family, William and Kate are world superstars. A private jet (A 380 or a more modest A321) is needed, deserved and would be economical, based on part of it being “sold” to the travelling press pack.

    @ canucklad – the current jet is an Austrian registered aircraft, not Australian.
